Lawyers Seek to Overtun Va. Tech Massacre Lawsuit


April 5, 2013

The state is asking the Virginia Supreme Court to set aside a jury's findings in favor of the families of two students who were slain in the April 2007 massacre on the Virginia Tech campus.

Attorneys representing the state are seeking to overturn the jury verdict from a year ago that found the state negligent in the deaths of the two students.

Their families argued that the two women might have survived the shooting if the Blacksburg campus had been alerted sooner of a gunman's first shootings.

The state alleges several trial errors in its appeal.
